PREVIOUS STORY:

HAYDEN, Idaho - Right now authorities in north Idaho are investigating a deadly officer-involved shooting early Monday morning in Hayden, Idaho. Officials with the Kootenai County Sheriff's Department say a 33-year-old man suspected of stealing a vehicle was pursued by an officer around 2:20 a.m. on eastbound Interstate 90 near Post Falls.  

Two Post Falls Police officers joined the pursuit that lasted approximately 20 minutes and continued through Coeur d'Alene and into Hayden. The suspect eventually was stopped at the intersection of St. Estephe Ct. and Bordeaux Drive in Hayden. An officer got out of his car in an attempt to apprehend the suspect, but the suspect rammed the officer with his vehicle and as a result, shots were fired.

The suspect was hit by a bullet, taken to the hospital and later died. A female passenger that had been in the suspect vehicle was uninjured, but after complaining of feeling ill, was transported to Kootenai Medical Center to be checked out.

The officer who was rammed by the suspect's vehicle suffered minor injuries was treated and released from the hospital.

At about 2:20 today, an officer attempted to stop a car that had triggered the BOSS system on I-90 in Post Falls. (The BOSS system detects stolen cars and wanted persons' vehicles.) The BOSS system activation was for a wanted person.

The suspect failed to stop and a pursuit ensued. Two Post Falls Police officers joined the pursuit to assist the officer. After chasing the suspect for nearly 20 minutes, they ended up in the residential neighborhood in the area of St. Estephe Ct. and Bordeaux Drive, in Hayden, Idaho.

After the officer got out of his vehicle, the suspect hit the officer with the suspect's vehicle. At least one officer then fired at the suspect, striking him. The suspect was transported to Kootenai Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. A female passenger that had been in the suspect vehicle was uninjured, but after complaining of feeling ill, was transported to Kootenai Medical Center to be checked out.

The officer received minor injuries and was treated and released.

The multi-agency investigation team will be conducting the investigation with the Sheriff's Office as the lead agency since the shooting occurred in their jurisdiction. More information will be released as it becomes available.
